    • Gait animation and analysis for biomechanically-articulated skeletons 

      Wills, Eric David, 1977- (University of Oregon, 2008-03)
      Digital three-dimensional (3D) models are useful for biomechanical analysis because they can be interactively visualized and manipulated. Synthesizing and analyzing animal locomotion with these models, however, is difficult ...
    • Gathering Information about Network Infrastructure from DNS Names and Its Applications 

      Alur, Abhijit (University of Oregon, 2015-01-14)
      DNS (Domain Name System) names contain a wide variety of information, such as geographic location, speed of the interface, type of interface, etc. However, extracting this information is challenging since this information ...
    • A Graph-based Approach for Semantic Data Mining 

      Liu, Haishan (University of Oregon, 2012)
      Data mining is the nontrivial extraction of implicit, previously unknown, and potentially useful information from data. It is widely acknowledged that the role of domain knowledge in the discovery process is essential. ...
    • Image Processing as Applied to Medical Diagnostics 

      Thomas, Kristine A. (University of Oregon, 2010-06)
      Image processing is a powerful tool for increasing the reliability and reproducibility of disease diagnostics. In the hands of pathologists, image processing provides quantitative data from histological images which ...
    • Improving Accessibility of Spatial Information: A Technique Using Parametrized Audio to Symbolize Lines 

      Brittell, Megen E. (University of Oregon, 2011-12)
      Graphics provide a rich display medium that facilitates identification of spatial patterns but are inaccessible to people who are blind or low vision. Audio provides an alternative medium through which to display information. ...
    • Integrating Performance Analysis in Parallel Software Engineering 

      Poliakoff, David (University of Oregon, 2015-08-18)
      Modern computational software is increasingly large in terms of lines of code, number of developers, intended longevity, and complexity of intended architectures. While tools exist to mitigate the problems this type of ...
    • Investigating the Mutual Impact of the P2P Overlay and the AS-level Underlay 

      Rasti Ekbatani, Hassan (University of Oregon, 2013-07-11)
      During the past decade, the Internet has witnessed a dramatic increase in the popularity of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications. This has caused a significant growth in the volume of P2P traffic. This trend has been particularly ...
    • Knowledge Base Refinement and Knowledge Translation with Markov Logic Networks 

      Jiang, Shangpu (University of Oregon, 2016-02-23)
      Machine learning and data mining have provided plenty of tools for extracting knowledge from data. Yet, such knowledge may not be directly applicable to target applications and might need further manipulation: The knowledge ...
    • Knowledge support for parallel performance data mining 

      Huck, Kevin A., 1972- (University of Oregon, 2009-03)
      Parallel applications running on high-end computer systems manifest a complex combination of performance phenomena, such as communication patterns, work distributions, and computational inefficiencies. Current performance ...
    • Measurement-based Characterization of Large-Scale Networked Systems 

      Motamedi, Reza (University of Oregon, 2017-05-01)
      As the Internet has grown to represent arguably the largest “engineered” system on earth, network researchers have shown increasing interest in measuring this large-scale networked system. In the process, structures such ...
    • Measuring the Internet AS graph and its evolution 

      Boothe, Peter Mattison, 1978- (University of Oregon, 2009-09)
      As the Internet has evolved over time, the interconnection patterns of the members of this "network of networks" have changed. Can we characterize those changes? Have those changes been good or bad? What does "good" mean ...
    • A Method for Reference-Free Genome Assembly Quality Assessment 

      Burkhart, Joshua (University of Oregon, 2013-10-03)
      How to assess the quality of a genome assembly without the help of a reference sequence is an open question. Only a few techniques are currently used in the literature and each has obvious bias. An additional method, ...
    • A Novel Neural Network Analysis Method Applied to Biological Neural Networks 

      Dunn, Nathan A. (2006-08)
      This thesis makes two major contributions: it introduces a novel method for analysis of artificial neural networks and provides new models of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans nervous system. The analysis method extracts ...
    • On P2P Networks and P2P-Based Content Discovery on the Internet 

      Memon, Ghulam (University of Oregon, 2014-06-17)
      The Internet has evolved into a medium centered around content: people watch videos on YouTube, share their pictures via Flickr, and use Facebook to keep in touch with their friends. Yet, the only globally deployed service ...
    • Ontology databases 

      Le Pendu, Paea Jean-Francois, 1974- (University of Oregon, 2010-03)
      On the one hand, ontologies provide a means of formally specifying complex descriptions and relationships about information in a way that is expressive yet amenable to automated processing and reasoning. When data are ...
